Who was the inventor of color television?

User Avatar
People wrongly suggest that Germans or Americans invented Color Television, since they gave the first color advertised broadcast, but it was indeed the work of John Logie Baird. He was a Scottish engineer and inventor of the world's first working television system in Hastings, England in 1923. He gave a public demonstration of the "Televisor" in 1925. In 1928, he showed off the color Televisor, using red green and blue light to generate a full color picture. This was the first example of color television although it never went into production. The BBC had committed to broadcasting television and had settled on the monochrome Televisor system for their launch in 1929. There was no market for color at the time and the technology of the era made color television a cumbersome system. In 1939, he showed color television using a cathode ray tube in front of which revolved a disc fitted with color filters, a method taken up by CBS and RCA in the United States. In recent times, the revolving disc has made a comeback in the shape of DLP projectors that also use rotating color filters. On 16 August 1944 he gave the world's first demonstration of a fully electronic color television display. He used color encoding systems that have formed the basis for much of the color television industry ever since. Commercial color television made it's first appearance in the US in 1953, a commercial failure withdrawn after a few months and again in 1955. The second attempt was successful and remained in use ever since. 1967 was the date that the UK finally introduced color broadcasts. In 1941 He patented and demonstrated a system of three dimensional television at a definition of 600 lines. A full 70 years later, we see 3D television becoming commonly available.

Do you plan to continue acting as an adult? Yes! I plan to go to film school after I'm done with college. I was thinking about either NYU or USC, depending if I want to leave home or not, because I know they both have amazing film schools. I want to become a producer and director and writer in the future when I grow up and kind of do a little bit of everything. I definitely want to stay in the entertainment industry and also stay in acting. I just love it. Every time I go to work, I have the time of my life. Every single time. It's just something that if I wasn't doing it, I would feel like there's something missing in my life.

What motivated you to write "The EveryGirl's Guide to Diet and Fitness: How I Lost 40 lbs and Kept it Off-And How You Can Too!"? I love sharing information which is why I love reporting. I'm also constantly asked by friends and fans how I lost the weight. But more than anything, I love helping people-especially women. And I know most women don't have a lot of free time or money or even willpower to get fit. All those factors are crippling to getting in shape. I know from personal experience. When I was 40 pounds overweight, I was working two jobs and going to school full time. Beyond being broke and overwhelmed, I also lacked the willpower to stay on any official diet for more than two days. However, during that time, through much trial and error, I found a way to overcome those obstacles, lose the weight and keep it off. I want to share what I did so other women can overcome similar obstacles to get fit and healthy.

Is media spoiling your young generation or not?

User Avatar
"Media" is a term that covers a vast array of information storage and delivery. It includes newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, computer based storage and retrieval. Do newspapers spoil our young generation? Probably not. And on line news services are also not considered to be harmful to young people. No doubt, content is available that delivers poor moral messages to people, young and old. Content on social media sites is often of such a poor quality that it is barely understandable and of no value at all. It is far too general to arrive at an answer to the question. Some media are very good for children and teenagers, others are just the opposite. However, to blame a medium for harming a generation is simplistic and probably incorrect. Look to content carried by the medium to judge it, not the medium itself.

You've made it your life's mission to raise awareness about addiction and educate on the importance of treatment. How important is this to you and how will you continue to leave your footprint? It is my life's mission to raise awareness about addiction and to educate the importance of getting good treatment. I want to help de-stigmatize the publics' view of addiction. People need to understand that it is, in fact, a disease, which has been scientifically proven. I will continue raising awareness through press, radio, media and speaking engagements. I have partnered with a lot of like-minded people to help get this out there. Like I said earlier, I believe this is Gods calling for me. Going through all my personal struggles publicly has given me leverage to show that addiction is a disease and that there is a much brighter light at the end of the tunnel and living life sober is well worth it!

What is the video '3 Guys 1 Hammer'?

User Avatar
"3 Guys 1 Hammer" Also known as the Dnepropetrovsk Killers/Maniacs. This is a real brutal SNUFF (murder) video that has been circulating the Internet about 3 Ukrainian/Russian teenagers who beat a man to death with a hammer, stabbed him, tortured him and pulled out his eyes with a screwdriver. YouTube has pulled it off their site - as have many others websites. It is the most graphic, violent and evil thing to see. You are watching a man being killed and actually die on video. Don't watch it; there are some things that don't ever need to be seen. It cannot be erased from your memory. The names of the Dnepropetrovsk killers are: Igor Suprunyuck, Viktor Sayenko and Alexander Hanzha. The 3 defendants (sociopaths), who proudly made this evil video and others of themselves murdering people, were found guilty on February 11, 2009, of murdering the man in the named video - as well as 20 others - attacking 29 people in all "for their fun" in the span of less than a month between 25th June - 16th July 2007. The victims ranged from a 14-year-old boy to women to elderly cancer patients. Suprunyuck and Sayenko were sentenced to life imprisonment; Hanzha received nine years in prison for these indiscriminate killings.

How do you set wii up to LED tv?

User Avatar
The Wii operates in standard definition so the cables that are supplied with it should work. Most modern televisions have RCA (or phono) connectors for audio and composite video. The standard Wii connector should connect to one of these sets of connectors. In Europe, televisions may have a scart connector instead of phono sockets. In this case, a scart adaptor may be needed to make the final connection.

Does it cost more money to turn off a tv when left a room and then back turn it back on in a few minutes or does it cost less money to just leave it on when left a room for a bit?

User Avatar
There are two factors to consider: 1. How much money will be saved by the savings in electricity when the TV is off? 2. Is the life of the TV reduced by turning it on and off frequently, so you will have to pay to repair or replace the TV sooner? It will usually cost less to turn the TV off if you will be gone more than a short time. see "Is it better to leave an electronic device on or to turn it on and off?"

There are several advantages of television like we all know that we can have a clear idea that what is happening in the world, we can have live information about the several events like sports and any other good or bad events happening on the globe. One can have a weather forecast and accordingly plan several things before time. It is also a good source of entertainment which is very cheap and within the access of every one. Television has shrunk the distance of the world you can watch what is happening several thousand miles away from you. So in totality it is information from all over the world, and it is fun and enjoyment with convenience. However along with some positive sides it has its disadvantages as well like watching too much of television also affects your eye and nerves.
